Does banana belong in fruit salad?

I'm making a fruit salad to take to a BBQ tonight, and I'm not sure what I'm going to put in it.

I'm starting with mangoes. I bought a case of really sweet ones so I can use as much of those as I need. Maybe 2 or 3. I'll also add blueberries and small red grapes. I'm thinking of a few plumcots, a nice rich purply red color, and maybe a sliced kiwi. Then I might squeeze half a lime over it and call it a day.

But what else belongs in a simple, fairly traditional fruit salad? Orange, apple, banana? Does the banana become unappetizing if the salad sits for an hour or two. (It's just-ripe, not overripe.)

Any advice? Opinions?
